In a dominating Game 1 win against the Miami Heat, the Denver Nuggets showcased their size advantage and poise under pressure. With a strong emphasis on utilizing their size to score in the paint, the Nuggets overwhelmed the Heat's defense and maintained control throughout the game. The Heat, on the other hand, struggled with their shot selection and settling for jumpers, failing to put pressure on the rim. Despite their efforts, the Heat found no answer for Nikola Jokić, who orchestrated the Nuggets' offense with ease, finishing with a triple-double. As the series progresses, the Heat will need to find a solution to contain Jokić and make adjustments to their approach on both ends of the court.
